NF Class flat wagons, NFB Class bolster wagon and NFC Class cement wagons

The NF class was the standard post war flat wagon built on the 18'-0" underframe. A total of 56 were built In 1953 22871-22885 entered service followed by 22851-22870 in 1956. Further construction was by conversion from other classes as follows:

1960 22801-22812 ex CXB (17695, 17403, 17543, 17404, 17633, 17556, 17599, 17576, 17513, 17498, 17445)
1965 22751-3 ex NC

17575, 17601, 17606, 17661, 17689 ex CXB

21514 ex HC

1966 20621 ex BE

In 1956 a group of 9 wagons were converted to carry cement containers (22851, 22854, 22855, 22867, 22869, 22872, 22875, 22878, 22884) and reclassified NFC. In 1961 they were all converted back to NF standard.

The final conversion was 22880 which in 1974 became a bolster wagon coded NFB. It was unique and was finally written off in 1986.
